The Very Basic Crochet Stitches you must know:
The Chain Stitch: Any project requires the knowledge of a chain stitch. It is a succession of loops to form a chain. Start by making a chain and get familiar with the movements. Feel the yarn around the hook. Notice if the yarn is tight or too loose. Adjust your grip to make it manageable. Especially children may enjoy making lots of chains to make bracelets or necklaces.
The Slip Stitch: The stitch builds up from already formed loops. It is basically a chain stitch connected to previous loops.
The Single Crochet: The single crochet builds up from the already formed loops of stitches, like a chain for example. By inserting your crochet hook into a previous loop, you will wrap the yarn around the hook and form this stitch. To start using this stitch make little objects like coasters, pot-holders, etc. with a few techniques to remember.
